Question from Betsy P.
Hello I received a small sewing machine, portable and very small, for Christmas. May I use that in class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Betsy! The school prefers that students use the machines at the studio because they know the working order they are in as well as the functionality for projects. That being said sewing machine knowledge does translate from one machine to another. There may be small differences in how the machine is threaded or how the bobbin is loaded but they are fairly minor.

Teacher was INCREDIBLE! Very positive, helpful, thoughtful, encouraging, patient! She made the class so valuable - will definitely be taking more courses!

Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/30/2017
This course taught me the basics of prepping a sewing machine, and high level teachings on how to cut fabrics and patterns, and how to sew various types of seams. I think 4 classes is not enough to really internalize all new concepts but I think I've got the sewing machine basics down, which is really what I went for!

Reviewed by Patricia T. on 9/25/2017
This class was amazing. I learned a lot. We made a blouse on sample material. It was great. It's a little overwhelming since you learn a lot of techniques. How to use sewing machine and then how to make a something out of the pattern. I recommend for beginners and intermediate.
Sewing 101 (Weekend Intensive)
Reviewed by Anonymous on 8/29/2017
I really enjoyed this class and learned a lot! I had a little bit of experience on a sewing machine, but with no formal training, so it was great to learn what tools to use, how to measure and cut, and how to sew certain types of seams. I liked that we got to do a full project (a tunic dress based on a pattern) after a few hours of learning basics. Our instructor Amelia was so positive and enthusiastic! She was encouraging and fun. We did run into the challenge that some of the sewing machines were temperamental, which meant some people fell behind, or the class was held up a little while the machines were fixed. That would be my only point of feedback for TAC to improve future workshops. Other than that, it was an excellent weekend, and I would highly recommend to others looking to learn sewing machine fundamentals!
